    Yeah, I have the most recent WordPress release (v 3.4.1) and I like Simple Lightbox because the developers are really nice, but I shall give jQuery Colorbox a try. Thanks for the tip!

    Yeah, I am not even sure if I would consider myself a coder yet. Haha! I get caught up by the simplest things and I do not seem to learn from my mistakes (when it comes to coding). I have actually been meaning to add that 14 pixels of margin to the p tag for a while now. I should probably get on that. And thank you for the fix!

    Thanks. I cleared my cache and I can now see the moth silhouette as well. Here is the code in my header.php that generates the title:


    <br /> <?php<br /> if (function_exists('is_tag') && is_tag()) {<br /> single_tag_title("Tag Archive for ""); echo '" - '; }<br /> elseif (is_archive()) {<br /> wp_title(''); echo ' Archive - '; }<br /> elseif (is_search()) {<br /> echo 'Search for "'.wp_specialchars($s).'" - '; }<br /> elseif (!(is_404()) && (is_single()) || (is_page())) {<br /> wp_title(''); echo ' - '; }<br /> elseif (is_404()) {<br /> echo 'Not Found - '; }<br /> if (is_home()) {<br /> bloginfo('name'); echo ' - '; bloginfo('description'); }<br /> else {<br /> bloginfo('name'); }<br /> if ($paged>1) {<br /> echo ' - page '. $paged; }<br /> ?><br />

    Okay, I did not want to bump this thread until I had the “Feel Good Candy” page somewhat done, here. So, what do you think? And any help with how I should present the characters would be muchly appreciated. Also, under “The Graphic Novel,” the last little bit of text explaining that the image to the left is computer generated should be flush with the rest of the text on the right. How do I get it to do that? Thanks!

    I do not understand the above code. In my “header.php” file, I believe it calls the current CSS stylesheet with this bit of code:

    If I make a new page in WordPress, would I not need to do something similar to this?

    Edit: I posted a similar message on the WordPress forum, here, and I got some useful help. So, problem solved!

    Basically, I was going to make a new HTML page with a fresh CSS stylesheet in WordPress. I have made a new HTML page before, but since it involved so little CSS, I just had the CSS in the HTML code. This time I want to do it right (by calling the new CSS stylesheet for that specific HTML page). I want everything to change, from the background, to the “Minter Tweed” logo, to the slogan below that, and the font type. Everything!

    I think I know what I am going to do. I am going to make a completely separate CSS stylesheet for the “Feel Good Candy” page, here. The only problem is: I do not know how to do this. I know how to make a new CSS stylesheet in WordPress, but how do I make the “Feel Good Candy” page recognize it? Any and all help with this will be greatly appreciated. This way, I can control every aspect of the “Feel Good Candy” page from the header image to the footer!

    I agree with you on the font. I currently have it set to:

    body {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif;
    }

    I guess I could use the “font” tag and change it up a bit in particular areas. The font I would really like to use is Bryant Pro. It goes nicely with Baruta Black, which is what the font is for the “Feel Good Candy” logo. But most people do not have Bryant Pro. You have to buy it and, rightly so, because it is a nice font.

    My “Minter Tweed” logo is simply just done with the font Dalliance. I originally got the concept from Marion Peck’s website. The nice thing about using Dalliance on Marion Peck’s website is that no letter is repeated in her name and also the “P” in her last name looks absolutely amazing (which is just the default capital “P” in Daliance). I hate that the letter “E” is repeated three times in “Minter Tweed.” It makes it very obvious that it is simply just a font, rather than an actual logo.

    If you have any suggestions on how I could get Bryant Pro to be recognized on all browsers and computers, please feel free to fill me in. Also, any suggestions on how to change the “Minter Tweed” logo to make it look a little more individualized would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your comment. It was very helpful.

    @Senff, you are a god among men. You helped me when I first started building this website and now you are here to finish it off. Thank you so much for your wonderful and direct help! I actually was reading up on doing roll-overs and I noticed that you basically take the element that you want to do the roll-over on and add “hover” to it, but I am still fairly new to all of this and I could not figure out how to properly tell the internet what I wanted it to do. Thank you again!

    Bump. I highly apologize for bumping this thread so many times. But it is almost solved! My question is: is the answer so obvious that people are not answering me? Or is it so difficult and that is why only several people have helped me out thus far?

    Edit: By the way, just as a side note, I am thanking each and everyone of you that helps me in a blog entry. You guys are amazing!

    Okay, I did a quick mock-up of what I am sort of envisioning from what @yashrg suggested, here. This would happen on roll-over of the image. A text bubble would slide out from underneath the image or it can be to the side of the image. That way, there would just be the images, and then when you roll-over the image, the white text slides out to give the specifics about that particular character. Does that make sense? If you know how I can achieve this effect, I would greatly appreciate it if you could show me how.

    Also, what do you think of the new background? My only complaint is that it seems to take a while to load.

    Thank you, @Senff. That sort of fixes it. Now, we need to figure out how to make it highlight a menu option when you roll-over the word. What you gave me is definitely a step in the right direction. Currently, if you select either sub-menu, the menu title and the sub-menu stay highlighted. Now, we need the second option to highlight on roll-over. Thank you once again, @Senff.

    Edit: And I just noted that the highlighting feature works when neither sub-menu is selected, but once one of the sub-menus is selected, the other one will not highlight on roll-over.

    Thank you for your help, @bryanfarris, but sorry, it did not work. It still highlights everything if I select “Feel Good Candy” and it only highlights “Gloom” when I select that. Sigh. I know there has got to be some way to do this!
